Etna spews ash on Catania

Latest 'paroxysm' from iconic volcano

(ANSA) - CATANIA, MAR 2 - Etna spewed volcanic ash onto Catania on Tuesday in the latest eruption from Europe's tallest active volcano.
    A southeastern breeze helped take the high and sense column of lavic ash across the eastern Sicilian port city.
    Lapilli also fell onto a number of smaller towns and villages on Etna's southern slopes including Nicolosi, Trecastagni, Pedara, Aci Sant'Antonio and San Gregorio.
    The iconic volcano also belched out a fresh lava flow.
    Volcanology institute INGV said it was the eighth "paroxysm" in Etna's latest phase of volcanic activity. (ANSA).
